Mario Gotze took to Instagram today to wish pop star Rihanna a happy birthday – and we can’t be the only ones surprised to see the pair are friends?
It actually stems from Rihanna’s visit to watch the World Cup Final between Gotze’s Germany and Argentina in the summer.
After seeing the Bayern Munich attacker hit the only goal of the game to crown the Germans world champions, the pop princess partied with the players.
And Gotze obviously remembers a great night with Rihanna and his team-mates in Rio de Janeiro as he wished her a happy 27th birthday.
He wrote on Instagram:
Happy Birthday @badgalriri – still remember the party in Rio? Hope you have a great party today! All the best!
We’ll be honest – Rihanna hooking up with some of Germany’s best football players makes for a surprising friendship.
I wonder if Gotze, Lukas Podolski and Bastian Schweinsteiger all got an invite to her birthday party this weekend?
